    Sidewinder Clay Target Thrower

    Any interest in this old beast?
    Throws birds well. Throws doubles, side to side and up and down, but the side ways motor has burnt out. Apparently needs rewinding.
    It is 110 volt through a 240 volt transformer. About 30 meter release cord.
    350 bird carousel, but a couple of the tower rails have snapped off so there are a couple blank spots. I hardly use the carousel, easier to sit someone in the trap house and drop a clay on the plate.
    I was going to rewind the motor and fix the carousel, but a pair of throwers came at the club so it's been sitting in the shed.
    Would like $500 without the trolley.

    Sounds like a job for @Maca49
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    What do you mean? This thing is possibly thirty years old. Am I wrong about your age? I really didn't mean to be offensive.

    Maca, I think he was paying you a complement, no way is that thing designed to launch live pidgeons.
